This is a track from Florida punk rock band Against Me!'s EP, I Was A Teenage Anarchist. The song features former Hot Water Music drummer George Rebelo who joined the band after their previous percussionist Warren Oakes upped sticks and left after eight years with the group. Singer/guitarist Tom Gabel told Spin Magazine that despite its title, this song has nothing to do with Oakes' departure. He explained: "Obviously, with a song title like 'Bitter Divisions,' you could read into it, like, 'Oh, that band lost their drummer, I get it,' but at the same time, we're living in a country that's bitterly divided politically, and that's what the song's about."
